Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua says he made a whopping Sh36 million from the television series Cobra Squad.
Governor Mutua said Cobra Squad “is one of the most successful films in Kenya,” and the fact that Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and his National Assembly counterpart Aden Duale recently talked about the movie confirms its stature.
“I’m very happy that Murkomen and Duale are talking about Cobra Squad and it was successful and I’m glad it made at least KSh.25 million for the first season. For the second one, I made KSh.11 million. So when they say it wasn’t successful I’m shocked,” he said during an interview with K24 on Sunday night.
Mutua said this when he was asked about his recent allegations that Deputy President William Ruto, Murkomen and Duale threatened him at State House, Nairobi. Murkomen and Duale dismissed Mutua’s allegations as ‘vipindiree’, saying he was trying to ‘reincarnate’ his Cobra Squad film.
“I do not know if the Deputy President was involved in Jacob Juma’s death. There were examples of other Kenyans, who complained [about death threats], but no one took them seriously, and then something happened. I can only speak about the threats to my life. I hope the police question the DP because I made a report to the police expecting action,” said Mutua.
“Ruto, Murkomen, and Duale thought I was attacking them when I called for lifestyle audit, fight against graft and land-grabbing. All I have talked about is a lifestyle audit. We need to know where one got the choppers he has, land or buildings,” he added.
